Perseid Meteors: It's that time of year again

Look toward the northeast tonight through tomorrow morning for our annual meteor shower [aka shooting stars!]

If you can get outside the city limits you get a better view [no city lights] but even those of us who stay put should be able to see some is this event. I admit that the best viewings I had in my life were in the middle of an island in Lake George NY and also in Vt [where there are few people, no billboards and almost no night light.]

But I am in the city by choice [or rather genetic necessity] and I will see what I can see - you do the same and enjoy!

If I get any good photos or videos I'll post.
